Bulk domain transfers are charged by the name and at a flat fee at GoDaddy, so you pay nothing beyond the initial cost and the ICANN fee, where appropriate. We also let you keep any time left on your current registrations AND throw in a free year of registration for each transfer.* Depending on how many domains you're moving, this could add up to sizable savings.
*.CO.UK, .ORG.UK, .ME.UK, .EU, .ES, .SE, .COM.AU, .NET.AU and .ORG.AU do not include a 1-year extension.
Domains can be transferred almost any time. However, ICANN prohibits domain transfer within 60 days of registration or prior transfer (.AU excepted). ICANN policy
Make sure the email address listed for the administrative (admin) contact on each domain is up-to-date. Both GoDaddy and your current registrar will use this address to communicate with you during the transfer process. To verify your administrative email address, look up each domain in the WhoIs database.
However, if any of your domains are privately registered, a service that hides your personal information from public view, you won't be able to check your admin email address in the WhoIs. You'll need to contact your current registrar to cancel the private registration and then change the email address if needed. How to change your admin email address.
For .AU domains, the admin contact is called the registrant contact.
Next unlock each of the domain names you'd like to transfer. Contact your current registrar for details on how to do this.
You may need an authorization code (sometimes called a transfer key or EPP code) from your current registrar. This isn't necessary in all cases, such as when transferring country-code Top-level Domain Names (ccTLDs). If the authorization codes aren't shown in your account manager, ask your current registrar to email them to you.
Buy GoDaddy domain transfers for up to 500 of your domain names at once, listing each one on a separate line in our bulk domain transfer tool. If the extension you'd like to transfer isn't listed, you can't transfer that domain name to us.
Under Select Your Transfer Nameservers, choose one of these options:
Keep my current nameservers. If your transfer domain name is associated with an active website, choose this option to make sure there's no interruption in site performance during the transfer.
Switch to GoDaddy's park nameservers. If you have email with us for the domain name, are using our Off-site DNS, or created a Premium DNS transfer template prior to the transfer, select this option.
NOTE: If you select this option and are not using Off-site DNS or a Premium DNS transfer template, we park the domain name on our parking nameservers and create a default zone file in your account with us. You can use the Zone File Editor in the DNS Manager to customize the new zone file. For more information, see Managing DNS for Your Domain Names.
Once you've paid for the transfers, we send an email to the person listed as administrative contact for each domain. Save this email – it has codes you'll need to authorize the transfer process.
